Infinity Blade I or II?

I am very interested in getting one of the Infinity Blade games and I just heard that Infinity Blade II came out.

Does anyone know which one is better?

Also, are these games anything like Blood and Glory? (I love that game)

It's too early to say.

I'd go with IB1 first as It's tried and true (been longer in the market).

Of course, the gameplay is very similar to Blood and Glory, but much better in my opinion.

Why not grab them both? It's not like they are $100 XBox/PS3 titles :-)

But if I had to choose, I'd go Infiniti Blade 2. They have had plenty of time to make it better than the first instalment.

Both are very good games. But IB2 is better, and worth it. you can customize more, use sword/sheild or a heavy weapon or dual wield weapons. you can also augment your weapons and give them more powers. The over experience is very similar to 1, it just has more of a story and a lot more content.

I will buy any games that support iCade, and I'll buy all in-app purchases if it has 2 player wifi/Bluetooth iCade support

Get both. They're both chock-full of awesome. 1 is more straightforward and linear, and 2 is more of a much larger and deeper version of 1. They both play like blood and glory but way better, as blood and glory is kind of a half-assed clone of IB. Spend the 10 bucks or whatever and get both, and play them in order.

Either get 1 or wait for a little while. IB 2 simply does not work on my ipod touch 4g right now.
